Todd Sickafoose – special guest
"A captivating improviser, imaginative composer, and master of collaboration." – San Francisco Chronicle A Bay Area native, Sickafoose spent some years in Los Angeles studying bass with Charlie Haden and composition with the great, late Mel Powell. Since then, he's been recording and performing with a ton of innovative folks and genre benders including Ani DiFranco, Andrew Bird, Jenny Scheinman, Ron Miles, Trey Anastasio, Nels Cline, Myra Melford, Tin Hat, Adam Levy, Allison Miller, Will Bernard, Anaïs Mitchell, Darol Anger, and more. The consistency of his personal voice within wildly diverse collaborations prompted the LA Weekly to call Todd "one of the most comprehensive musical minds of this coast".
